Under Obama, the private sector rose, but was offset by government job declines, a position I believe Republicans favor.

Yes, Obama is definitely a small government type, LOL. Have a good day on planet Zongo.


Your LOLs and references to pretend destinations aside, you did nothing to counter my point.

Government jobs declined under Obama:

As measured from the low point, private sector jobs rose under Obama by over 4MM. Incidentilly, that's the same as it was for Bush. This is relevant as both Presidents protest that its not fair to measure from the beginning of their terms since they both inherited economic decline or impending economic decline:

Texas private sector jobs declined by 0.6 while public sector grew by 6.4%:

Planet Zongo indeed. Way to dodge the point.
